PLANNING

Blawith Farm has the benefit of two Planning Permissions.

The original farmhouse and attached barn, being the westerly building within the courtyard, has planning consent under South Lakeland District Council reference 5/91/2355/LH/SCL.

A material start has been made on the planning permission, confirmed in a letter from South Lakeland District Council dated 30 October 1997. A copy of which is available from the selling agents offices.

The consent is to extend the farmhouse into part of the attached barn, for the creation of a second dwelling within the remainder of the barn.

The particulars of the accommodation to be provided for the two dwellings are contained in these particulars.

The second planning consent dated September 2015, under South Lakeland District Council reference SL/2015/0833, is for the conversion of the two detached buildings, formerly The Old Laundry and the Coach House into two dwellings with adjacent parking. A copy of this planning consent is incorporated in these particulars of sale.

The plans referred to under condition (2) of the planning consent are available for inspection at the selling agent's offices.

Extracts from the supporting plans for the two applications are within these particulars.

Potential buyers are recommended to view the planning applications on line at South Lakeland District Council, Planning website, typing in the two references.

Directions
Approaching from an easterly direction via A590 and Lindale, the Golf Course on the left, access to the farm is via the main entrance to the Netherwood Hotel on the right hand side. Alternatively, from Grange town centre following the main road out of the town, at the mini roundabout turn right, and after the railway station, the entrance to the Netherwood Hotel is on the left. Proceed along the entrance drive to the Hotel, and turn sharp left along the private drive leading to Brown Robin Cottages, on the right. The drive continues around the westerly side of Blawith Farm and opens in to the courtyard, between the farmhouse and detached barn and the two detached buildings.
The precise location and extent are shown on the Sale Plan, edged red with these particulars.

The freehold of the access drive is included in the sale and will be subject to rights of access for the benefit of the sellers and the owners of Brown Robin Cottages.

Location
The Farm is located just above and to the north west of the iconic 'Netherwood Hotel' between Lindale Road leading into Grange and the Windermere Road.

Services
Mains water and electricity.

The development would require the provision of a foul water drainage system for the benefit of the four proposed units. Plan 3, included in the set of copy plans, indicates the location of a proposed waste water treatment plant on the westerly side of the access drive.
